Oops! Sen. John McCain misidentifies Turkey’s Ambassador to the US

mccain 2

On Friday, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., had an “important meeting” with Serdar Kiliç, Turkey’s ambassador to the U.S.

Unfortunately, McCain incorrectly identified the Turkish diplomat as the U.S. Ambassador to Turkey.

After about an hour, McCain deleted the erroneous tweet and replaced it with this one:

The real U.S. Ambassador to Turkey, Francis J. Ricciardone, Jr., was unavailable for comment.
